Price=same
Quality=same
Lux 4.0=more bluish hue
Lux 5.0=more white hue
Lux 5.0=brighter

Some people, myself included, prefer the look of the 4.0 to the 5.0, since it'll give some contrast between the rings and the HID's.

both 4.0 and 5.0 are quality products. i decided to stick with 4.0 b/c it matches monaco blue better and is more than bright enough for me.

Either LUX 4.0 or 5.0 will be a great choice. If you want a bluer tint, go for the 4.0, if you want whiter and brighter, go for the 5.0. They are the best angel eye mods out there. The quality is better than the rest!
